's the news live at the pentagon. are we getting a straight answer how this happened? reporter: well, in essence, someone finally noticed that after reporting to congress last year that attacks by the taliban were down by 7%, a figure derived from month-to-month reports from the field about the number of enemy attacks, in fact u.s. and nato officials didn't include the figures gathered by the afghans themselves, leading to the following statements promenade meteorologist. >> violence levels had been trending downward in the last two years after five years of steady increases, beginning in 2006. reporter: the problem is the attacks weren't trending downward. they were exactly the same as 2011. an embarrassing admission by the pentagon about how the president's strategy was bearing fruit, may have been misleading. >> shepard: what is the pentagon saying now? >> day blame the afghans. the afghan commanders forgot to submit their field reports so the pentagon data was misleading. quote: during a quality control check we became aware that some data was incorrectly entered into the databa
saying their budgets are going to be cut. then the pentagon came out the next day and said we're going to have to lay off 800,000 civilian workers or furlough them one day a week. yesterday you had lahood, the transportation secretary come to the white house briefing room and say we're going to have delays in air traffic, shut down air traffic control. this tactic is because the white house recognizes they're trying to sway public opinion and put pressure from the outside on republicans. it's interesting. a poll came out just this week that said the vast majority of americans don't know a lot about these cuts that are coming down. the white house is trying to change that. the white house is still working, hoping for a deal. but i get a sense that most of washington and probably even at the white house they recognize we could go past the sequester at least for a few weeks, and there's going to be another chance late in march where the continuing spending resolution comes up or expires and they're going to have to negotiate deal on that. and it all could just be wrapped up into one. >> d

the pentagon get audited and that's only fair and we don't do that. look at the last time we we reported on the record, july 2011 and june 2012 that the department of labor paid 5 billion in improper unemployment benefits so i suspect if we got 5 billion at labor in one year, i suspect the pentagon has got some issues, too, but we can't get an audit of the pentagon. >> no, i don't think there's any question about it, the $300 hammer story. there's no question every area of tit should be cut. not 12% of the of the budget and 50% of the cost of the sequester when you don't even touch entitlement spending. greta, everybody in washington knows you can't balance the budget and you can't get the spending and debt under control unless you take on entitlements. the president won't do it. and so, until he leads. and we're not going to get anywhere. >> boy it's going to be interesting to see what happens a week from now, governor. as always, nice to see you, sir. >> okay. thanks, greta. appreciate it it. >> donald trump has a warning, he's predicted a big fat explosion, we spoke with donald trump

with a balanced approach to new revenue and necessary pentagon cuts and it creates jobs all over the country. it equalizes the cuts we've already made with revenue by closing tax loopholes for america's wealthiest individuals and corporations. but we shouldn't just sacrifice our economic recovery because republicans are unwilling to vote for one single penny and new revenue, new contributions from their billionaire friends and corporations. we have to look at what these cuts mean in the sequester. the sequester involves 70,000 children being kicked off of head start. no one in this chamber disagrees about the importance of head start. early childhood education is absolutely essential in creating the foundation for learning in children all over the world. and that's what head start is about. 70,000 american children being kicked off head start. that's what happens when you use a meat cleaver instead of a scalpel. we're talking about more than a million kids who will see their schools lose education funding. we're talking about emergency responders who will lose their jobs, meaning slower resp
federal government except the pentagon. all of a sudden the last couple of months hitting this arbitrary political target is vital. what is vital, as i said, is having a deficit strategy that's consistent with sound economic growth and making sure that we strengthen the middle class and that means as a first step to make sure that our deficits, as the economy improves, as we grow, that our deficits are not growing faster than g.d.p. and that we stabilize the debt as a percentage of g.d.p. because if you don't, as the economy improves, higher government borrowing -- we need to adopt that strategy and adopt it now. have it kicked in over a period of time. we just got very good news that the rate of per capita increase in health care costs is actually at the lowest level of 50 years. we need to continue to adopt strategies to keep that -- those costs increase low. as as demographic changes means baby boomers retire and we clearly need to keep working on those issues. but let me just sum up where we are in terms of our deficit reduction targets. over the last little over two years we have no
